Challenge yourself by entering On the Rocks!

On the Rocks is the first geological film festival for everybody. You should enter a creative video, representing your research, passions or new ideas regarding the Earth, in no more than 4 minutes and 55 seconds!
We are looking for passionate contributions made through any filming technique. Your film should be addressed to a wide audience of non-specialists, bringing them into the wonders, dangers and surprises of an adventurous geological journey! The potential contributors may therefore be either scientists, students, filmmakers, or passionate laymen. You may join the film festival on your own or in a group, and without any limitations of imagination.
